We want to change the way the internet enables the spread of news and information so it serves the public good over corporate and political interests.

The business models of Big Tech companies – data aggregators, social platforms and online media – expose the internet to unprecedented levels of hate speech, disinformation and polarisation. We can stop this and ensure these companies work for democracy rather than against it.

We must reset the rules and standards for the products and services that are at the centre of these issues. And we must raise public expectations about how the internet can better support democracy, by explaining what’s wrong, exposing why it’s happening and offering solutions. We believe the internet can once again become a force for good, not a marketplace for manipulation by the highest bidder.
